debt and the deficit, the president's proposal was more realistic and it would have less of a shock to the system in the country and lead -- in that it would balance spending cuts. we like is more balanced approach to energy. we are in favor of obamacare. the editorial board was in favor of a public option so it did not go far enough for us. on social issues, immigration reform, women's rights, birth control, the editorial board aligns more with the president's policies. that is where we came down. we said that the voters are being asked by both candidates to take a leap of faith. given what we know about the previous four years, we decided that it was going to be an easier but to go with the president for four more. host: how many times have you seen president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle.

worried and warned. >> now, deficit. big issue for a lot of voters this election season. we know that governor romney has said in the third debate that u.s. is on track to follow greece, that america is the next greece. is this just really hot rhetoric or is it likely? >> it was a wonderful little sound bite, wasn't it? if obama gets elected, u.s. is the next greece. it's just hyperbole the differences between the u.s. and greece are so enormous that it doesn't really bear really fair comparison. not only because the u.s. has got the dollar, which is the world's largest reserve currency and largest market and growing at 2% and employment at 7.8%. all these issues. what the governor is talking about, of course, is debt and deficits. and the very high level of u.s. debt, which at some point is going to have to be addressed. whoever gets elected to the white house, whichever party takes the house and the senate, they are going to have to deal with the debt crisis. >> now, also got a chance to ask richard about his stateside train trip through the u.s. talked to voters from chicago throug

which one. we say that's the wrong way to start. america doesn't need another tax cut. the deficit is the problem, not the basic way to tax. >> if you look at how americans feel who would better handle the which i, they're pretty strongly in favor of mitt romney. here's a guy that has a strong background in business who understands how commit works. so americans fundamentally have more confidence in mitt romney to handle economy. it didn't mean that he'll win the election. but if it just comes down to the economy, i think mitt romney has the edge. >> chris, do you want to respond to that and to the sense that maybe the average -- that romney goes over well with the average american? are you aichling more at the international business community? >> i think we're aiming at the community in the word, who we would think would be better. we're saying who he we think would best serve america and the world. so we need to look at the deficit, foreign policy, also opinions on social policy. >> one of the things that i found troubling about the economist's endorsement was they cited this sti

gap among men, his advantage among men is not bigger than his gender deficit among women. which seems to be a concession from that official at least that he's losing ohio because obviously all of the voters are either men or women. >> excellent analysis there. >> the voters are either men or women. there you go. throughout this campaign the democratic brand has been above water and more popular than the gop brand which has been consistently under water and less popular than the democratic brand. the entire time in this whole campaign. it's not just a party i.d. issue. not just akin or mourdock. do you think the gop brand is drag romney down just enough? >> well i think a few years ago congressman tom davis of virginia had talked about this basically saying the gop brand was dog food. i think it's better than it was then. i do think that -- look i think romney has had a lot of things to overcome in terms above signatureses that he took in the primary when he talked about being severely conservative. not necessarily the republican brand but perhaps the conservative wing of the rep

plays out. romney will say, "yes, i do have a deficit plan. go look on my website. it's there. it's true." which puts the burden on the audience. i wish they would go to your website because they won't find out the answer at mitt romney's website. >> but then we come to the second part of the process that protects. you heard in the debates candidates saying, "that's not true. check the record. check the transcript," and an invitation essentially to go to the fact checkers and journalism. to the extent that this year we've had a lot of fact checking in national journalism, a lot more than we've had in previous years. and we know now after the first three debates. last time i talked to you it was, it was only a hypothesis, that the people who said they went to the fact checking sites or went to journalism for fact checking on the web, were more likely to accurately be able to portray the candidates' positions and those exchanges in which somebody was alleging deception. romney, his plan largely doesn't add up. obama did not apologize around the world, if by apologize you mean said, "i

children is not how we tackle the deficit. if we want to build opportunities for all americans, then, yes, we have to cut wasteful spending. but we also have to make smart investments in our future. things like education and infrastructure for an economy built to last. that is what my husband stands for. that's the country he has been working to build for the last four years. those are his values. and let me tell you as first lady i have seen up close and personal just how critical those values are for leading this country. i have seen how the issues that come across a president's desk they are always the hard ones. the decisions that aren't just about the bottom line. but they're about laying a foundation for the next generation. and i have seen how important it is to have a president who doesn't just tell us what we want to hear, but who tells us the truth even when it's hard. especially when it's hard. >> and coming up, the first lady tells us about meeting the president, her marriage and spending her 20th anniversary on a double date with the romneys. wanted to provide better emp

have to deal with that. you'll get bigger fiscal deficits, i promise you. >> the public affairs council did a report recently looking at the whole public attitude of businesses, particularly in america, and it was very positive despite all the anti-globalizations most people particularly young people in america do see the importance of big corporations like microsoft and google and what they've been able to achieve in create jobs and moving the economy forward and i think that is what it's about. it's about the success of business, about generating growth and a future. and many of those people including black voters across the united states have not done well in the last four years. they haven't. >> do you think microsoft has created more american jobs or cut more american jobs over the last ten years? >> i'm not certain. some of hose jobs have been abro abroad, of course. >> it's not just about the big corporations. it's about the heart of small businesses. they employ hundreds of thousands of people and the ability to create wealth and to create jobs is crucial and it's been a
